This show is rip roaring and overflowing with that X factor the boys could throw out on any givin night. Just listen to how tight they are on Rooster. Everyone on this night was in VERY fine form.
As the commenter below mentions a BAD ass show.... is tight and hot rip roaring energy.
Know how sometimes you have heard a show a few times then it hits you, that's this one here.

Subject: This Rocks
This is a bad ass show. Sparkling, glittering, bouncing, rocking. Great China-Rider, great Shakedown (especially toward the end, with Garcia getting kooky).

Would love to hear more Phil, but it is still a nice audience recording. I'm trying to be more sparing with the 5 stars, but can't help it. Love these guys.

i went to this night and remember a Mexican wave travelling around the place . It started after lost sailor. The band played a note each round in a circle , getting faster and faster , and sent a spinning vortex out into the hall . I watched everybody beside me lurch in the plexus region as it hit and then we did the same . Then into saint . Only alan stivell has done to my spine what the dead did to my stomach that night.

great show, really nice and warm sounding audience recording. this sounds like it was one to have been present at... shakedown is ripping, high time is a beauty, and the brokedown restart is hilarious...followed by a really nice rendition. get it!

Subject: Different tour
Nice recording and show. I like this tape better.

"Where the hell is the rest of the tour? Amsterdam?"

What rest of the tour? They didn't play Amsterdam this tour.
Reviewer: yippierb - - May 29, 2005
Subject: Nice. Where the hell is the rest of the tour ? Amsterdam?
The High Time and Brokedown are worth the download alone. Is this the only HT until Richmond 85?
Reviewer: Duanebase - - May 7, 2005
Subject: This show has it all..
great song selection & superb playing from the band.
i prefer this audience over the frank streeter version, sounds a little thicker to me. this is the grateful dead at their best.
